For this post, I've combined my Reasonable Value screen with a filter for those companies that have raised their dividend in the last week. Two stocks below qualified and, coincidentally, both raised their dividends by $0.08
|Symbol||Name||Industry||PE||PEG||Price To Sales||Price To Book||EV To EBITDA||Debt To Equity||New Dividend||Previous Dividend|
|AFL||Aflac Inc.||Accident & Health Insurance||12.52||0.65||1.2||2.28||7.75||0.2645||1.2||1.12|
|ALTE||Alterra Capital Holdings Ltd.||Property-Casualty Insurers||4.91||0.62||1.22||0.73||N/A||0.0992||0.48||0.40|
So are investors favoring these two companies? Here are the charts for each:
Though both stocks have wilted lately, Aflac seems to be holding up a bit better. Both the 200-day moving average and the 50-day moving average are still heading upward for Aflac while it looks like ALTE is really rolling over despite beating earnings expectations.
At this point, Aflac's dividend yield is 2.2% and Alterra Capital's yield is 2.7%. Compare this to the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond which is currently at 2.61%.
